    Okay-dokey. Maybe.

    Rebooted, removed the final Win10 KB from installed updates. Rebooted.

    The stupid SysTray thing is still there, but none of the GWX files appear in the installed updates list. They DO all appear in the Hidden Updates list. None appear (once I'd hidden that last just-removed GWX one from the "Important Updates" list) in the Updates list.

    So. I'll see how it goes.

    Thanks for your help, Brds7t7; and for your try Magoo...


    If it comes back, I'll be back. (I'm not actually the 'just a couple (12 now) messages completely new member' in my ID at left ... my old ID and password didn't connect, and I no longer have that old, old email address, so I made a new 'self' here.)

    After this last reboot, these two RE-appeared in the installed list:
    KB2952664
    KB3021917

    So, deleted the first one and rebooted as Windows asked.

    Well. The RegSweep and reboot (and removal of the one) DID remove all my "hidden" updates -- all of which were these Win 10 things. Re-hid them. Rebooted.

    Have now dele... uninstalled the second one, and will reboot, as Windows is asking.

    Fingers crossed!
    Really strange that they keep coming back. The only one I had issues with was KB2952664, which is the update I had to uninstall twice. But after that it didn't come back and I was able to hide it.

    2664 tried to sneak in as optional and recommended or recommended and important, that`s why it shows up twice :)

    Sneaky little bugger!
    That one seems to have disappeared from my hidden updates now, think it's been superseded by one of the latest ones that showed up. Seems to have a similar description.

    That list just keeps on growing!

    Hi its me again, This whole situation is becoming very sticky.
    I wish M$ would accept our right to use the software we paid for and stop pushing what they want and stuff what we the consumer want.

    I think KB3045999 is a renamed clone of KB3068708.

    Please confirm and add to the list and I will delete this KB if not needed.

    We all help each other and it is all so great, thank You.

    KB3045999 is a security update so it's safe to install.

    KB3068708 is the Diagnostic and Telemetry update so that's the one to skip.

    I can't see KB3045999 on my list of updates though, it may have been superseded by a more recent one?

    Ignore that....just found it. Definitely a security update so it's ok to install

    the first paragraph takes you here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3068708
    This does not sound to great, but if you say its ok then I'll roll with that.

    thanks again

    I`ve had that installed since 5/14 and you are just getting it now ?

    After reading up on it again, I may uninstall it, I don`t like any of that telemetry junk on my pc.

    I just did an install on my Gateway test machine, installed every update except KB2923545

    It installed KB3068708 but not KB3045999 and it`s done updating. So yes they may be one in the same.

    That's the one I told you NOT to install

    It's KB3045999 which is the security update.

    I'm confused AddRam as they have completely different descriptions?

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3045999 is a security update.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3068708 is the telemetry update which supersedes:
